AS/A Level Further Mathematics is a very useful (and sometimes essential) qualification for careers in business, accounting, actuarial work, computing, science, engineering, technology, operational research, teaching, civil service, surveying, etc.
This course is aimed at students who enjoy Mathematics and feel confident with the subject. It is especially recommended for students intending to study Maths (on its own or as part of a combined degree), Science or Engineering at University. This may be a good choice of a fourth AS level, if you have already chosen Maths and two others and you have a strong GCSE profile.
